Horizon Agriculture DSX drill: Direct drilling on the Horizon

Horizon Agriculture may be a relatively new name on the UK drill scene, but the people behind the British manufacturer have a wealth of manufacturing and farm experience. We caught up with the 4.0m demonstrator DSX in some sticky conditions last autumn

In an industry where there are already plenty of direct drills is there room for a new one? Horizon Agriculture thinks so, and the DSX Drill has attracted support since its initial launch from as far afield as Denmark, Bulgaria and Tasmania. In fact the drill is not a completely new concept – Horizon Agriculture was formed from a management restructure of Sly Agri, which has been developing seeding technology for 10 years, most recently with the Sly Boss coulter (see profi 6/2019).
